Description

Eight groups of nine tracks each comprise the class yard at Elkhart. South and north bypass tracks flank the hump lead; westbound departure yard, cleanout tracks, and inbound freight lead are adjacent to the south (left, above), and eastbound departure yard, Early Bird track, and main line are adjacent to the north. Group five is split on the west end, with three outside tracks on the north heading toward the eastbound side, three on the south toward the westbound side, and the middle three tied into the car shop lead (the shop roof is visible beyond group four). This photograph was taken from the west window of the trainmaster's office.
